Thx Rodlo, isn't it really that creepy? :scared: We're being watched all the time.
Imagine that this "technology" is already available for us, but there must be surely even more surprising and scaring stuff that is not. :scared:

I liked your pic though, I gotta change mine coz I made it too small.

Imagine it was a live broadcast :eek: . The pics are about half a year old, actually.

Really??, I did not know how long they've taken them. They might have other pics about us too......maybe some with nudity :rolls:

I think they're older than that. I was looking at some stuff around here, and there are things missing from the pictures. One example...my school got a huge new addition a couple years ago, and it isn't there in the satellite pictures. Second example...my friend moved into a newly built house a little over a year ago, and it's not in the images.

I can't tell, noting differences in a such a huge city as Buenos Aires is not an easy task, I assume they have at least 2 years (just guessing)

Ok, now I have mine bigger :D

1) A pic from my neighbourhood and where the building where I live now is located.
2) A zoom out of my neighbourhood.
3) Buenos Aires location in South America.
4) Buenos Aires itself, if you look well you'll find there's some kind of borders there, Capital City Buenos Aires' borders.

You've got to either type in an address, or zoom WAY in.

I also can't run the program properly.... my whole computer seems to be too old and my graphics card too slow for this kind of intense 3d application... I clearly have no games computers and it takes about minutes until the pictures are refreshing when I try to move the map or zoom in :lol:

Well it might take some time to zoom coz it's connected to the web and streaming information, but as soon as you found your place, it works great ;)

I've just found out that there's no need to download the program, coz in this link you'll find the same pics that you can find in the program.....check it out (click on the satellite button) and search your location ;)
